  • Measuring Slack in Chain

    How do you measure the slack in the chain? Do you just pick a spot on the frame and measure chain. Then move the chain to upper most point and measure again and thats the slack?

    Thats pretty much it... gotta have a bit more slack on a TL chain than other bikes as it tightens up more when you sit on it.

      yeppers. rupes is correct (and still touching himself)

      i measure it by the left exhaust header. i keep mine so that it has a little room before it hits the header, this way it has enough slack to let the susp. operate correctly

          And leave enough so when you tighten the axle up and the chain tightens up some more that it is not too tight.
